We’re also working on a series of articles to discuss what a President Hillary Clinton would have done as compared with the mess President Boob Obama has committed.
While working on that series of articles we hit on an obvious question: Who would mourn if Obama quit?
Republicans will mourn a loss of the opportunity to beat Obama at the ballot box but they will also celebrate not having to run against an incumbent who will corruptly wield all the powers and financial advantages of the presidency. So count out Republicans from the “miss Obama” list.
The creeps, thugs, henchmen and operatives Obama has surrounded himself with will be unhappy to lose jobs and money from the Obama campaign but they will move on and certainly by now they can’t tolerate Obama either.
African-Americans? Will they mourn the loss of the golden calf? There might be some resentment against Obama opponents but not much else. There will be despondency that they were so wrong in voting overwhelmingly in the general election and many primaries for skin color not content of character. Surely they will lament that Obama was such a boob. But like Libyans, they will be glad to be rid of a creep that has decimated the black middle class and spawned unemployment among black youth and the entire black community. We doubt blacks will mourn the loss of Boob Obama.
Will Boob Obama be missed by young people? Not since such numbers began to be tracked, in 1948, has youth employment been so low. The young won’t miss the Boob.
Compare the thought of ‘Obama Quits’ with the reality of ‘Steve Jobs Quits’. Even those who cannot bear the near cult attitude of Apple consumers and resent the nauseating ‘Apple is so great’ chants understand that Steve Jobs deserves kudos and respect.
That Steve Jobs has quit his job and left a competent successor ameliorates the loss felt. But Steve Jobs will be missed and we all hope that he will continue to live and he will continue to work even if at diminished capacity due to health. “Live Long And Prosper cyber dude.”
“Obama and the ‘Competency Crisis’
Like many Americans who supported him, I long for a triple-A president to run a triple-A country.
The rising impatience with the leadership of President Obama was epitomized on Aug. 8 in the middle of one of the now-habitual Wall Street roller coasters. His speech on the economy was 53 minutes late. What showed on TV screens was an empty White House podium, an image suggestive of the absence of leadership. When the president did speak, the best he could come up with was “We’ve always been and always will be a triple-A country.” The market’s response was a Bronx cheer, a drop of another 300 points.
Mr. Obama seems unable to get a firm grip on the toughest issue facing his presidency and the country—the economy. He now asserts he is going to “pivot” to jobs. Now we pivot to jobs? When there are already 25 million Americans who are either unemployed or cannot find full-time work? Does this president not appreciate what is going on?
Fewer Americans are working full-time today than when Mr. Obama took office. We have lost over 900,000 full-time jobs in the last four months alone, and long-term unemployment is at a post-World War II high. The public’s faith in his ability to deal with the economy has plunged. As Doyle McManus of the L.A. Times put it, “Can this president persuade voters to let him keep his job when so many have lost theirs?” Even Jimmy Carter didn’t plumb the depths of national dissatisfaction revealed in the stunning Gallup poll taken Aug. 11-13. The president’s approval rating was only 39% with a mere 26% approving of his handling of the economy.
Meanwhile, everyone in the business world is pleading for some kind of adult supervision to build a national platform for sustained growth that includes a long-term fiscal plan that addresses our ballooning debt. They are desperate for strong leadership and feel that all we are getting out of Washington is a lot of noise as Democrats and Republicans blame one another.”
What happened to Suckerman? Why is Zuckerman now a racist? Mort Zuckerman is a racist because as we learned in 2007 and 2008 anyone who opposes the golden calf is a racist. So Mort Zuckerman is a racist.
Racist Mort Zuckerman continues:
“Since the president is the one who represents all of America and all Americans, the buck stops with him rather than with the Congress. It is the president’s job to offer a coherent program for the twin threats of a static economy and an unsustainable explosion of our debts and deficits. [snip]
It is no surprise that many have begun to doubt the president’s leadership qualities. J.P. Morgan calls it the “competency crisis.” The president is not seen fighting for his own concrete goals, nor finding the right allies, especially leaders of business big or small. Instead, his latent hostility to the business community has provoked a mutual response of disrespect. This is lamentable given the unique role that small business especially plays in creating jobs.”
That’s Mort Zuckerman’s polite way of saying what we have been saying: Obama is a boob. Zuckerman then borrows some of our articles from 2007 in which we noted that Obama goes into “blame the staff” or just plain “blame everyone else” mode when it is clear Barack Obama himself is the source and fountain of the corruptions, treacheries, and booberies we have witnessed for years. Here’s how Mort recycles with polite perfumes our own blunt charges:
“The president appears to consider himself immune from error and asserts the fault always lies elsewhere—be it in the opposition in Congress or the Japanese tsunami or in the failure of his audience to fully understand the wisdom and benefits of his proposals. But in politics, the failure of communication is invariably the fault of the communicator.
Many voters who supported him are no longer elated by the historic novelty of his candidacy and presidency. They hoped for a president who would be effective. Remember “Yes We Can”? Now many of his sharpest critics are his former supporters.”
Not while we’re around. Although we are sweet and demure we will continue to provide the sharpest critiques. But some of the boobs who supported the boob are indeed commencing to speak up about the boobery they witness:
“Witness Bill Broyles, a one-time admirer who recently wrote in Newsweek that “Americans aren’t inspired by well-meaning weakness.” The president who first inspired with great speeches on red and blue America now seems to lack the ability to communicate any sense of resolve for a program, or any realization of the urgency of what might befall us. The teleprompter he almost always uses symbolizes and compounds his emotional distance from his audience.
We lack a coherent and muscular economic strategy, as Mr. Obama and his staff seem almost completely focused on his re-election. He should be spending most of his time on the nitty-gritty of the job instead of on fund raisers, bus tours and visits to diners, which essentially are in service of his political interests. Increasingly his solutions seem to boil down to Vote for Me.”
You bought him, you own him Mort. You were a Sucker-man in 2008. It’s up to you to clean up the mess you made you racist you.
Zuckerman is a racist for daring to criticize Barack Obama. In many Obama Hopium dens Mort Zuckerman will also be denounced for being a plutocrat and therefore not worthy of attention. But maybe the Hopium dealers and consumers will be able to explain the strange case of soon to be racist Trumpka.
It seems Trumpka, the head of the AFL-CIO, is taking some of our advice. In our first article (and subsequent ones) regarding the collective bargaining law in Wisconsin we exhorted Big Labor to extract itself from the clutches of Obama’s Dimocratic Party. Now Big Labor might be doing just that:
“The media likes to push the notion that the Republican Party will split in two because of the Tea Party, but they may have missed a real split on the other side of the aisle. AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka announced the creation of a union super-PAC that will “build our own structure” rather than “build structures for others.” And by “others,” Trumka means the Democratic Party:
The growing rift between labor and their Democratic allies was on full display Thursday, as AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told reporters that labor groups are planning to scale back their involvement with the Democratic Party in advance of the 2012 elections.
Going forward, Trumka said, the labor movement will build up its own political structures and organizations rather than contribute to and depend on the Democratic Party’s political operation. …
Labor has traditionally been a major contributor to Democratic candidates and causes around the country. Trumka said that their outside effort will help keep union-backed candidates more accountable for promises made on the campaign trail.
“Let’s assume we spent $100 in the last election,” he said, explaining the union’s position.
“The day after Election Day, we were no stronger than we were the day before,” said Trumka. “If we had spent that [$100] on creating a structure for working people that would be there year round, then we are stronger.”
That’s not just an expression of disapproval with the Democratic Party. It’s a public vote of no confidence. Unions spent heavily in the 2010 midterm elections; they accounted for three of the top five high-spending outside groups in that cycle. They also spent tens of millions of dollars in Wisconsin this year in an attempt to wrest control of the state Senate away from Republicans, and failed to achieve their objective. Trumka’s comments make it clear that he doesn’t see a great prospect of electoral success in 2012, either.”
The author of the recent “What If Obama Quits” article discusses the potential meaning of racist Trumpka’s threats:
“This puts the AFL-CIO into a position where the creation of a third party is not just a theoretical possibility, but perhaps a likely outcome. The Tea Party doesn’t have deep pockets for organization, but the unions have a mostly-mandated grip on the pockets of their members, thanks to closed-shop rules in many areas of the country. They can generate hundreds of millions of dollars for elections and candidate recruitment, especially in areas of high union concentration. Unions might not be strong enough to run their own presidential candidate, but they could win House seats and perhaps a few Senate seats as well, or more likely just provide a competitive third choice for voters. In fact, there’s really no other way to read Trumka’s statement but as a threat to compete with the Democratic Party on their own terms.
And that’s where the Democratic Party will suffer most. If unions start running well-funded alternative candidates, the vote will split and allow Republicans to make gains in Congress and in state legislatures. Either Democrats will have to start endorsing union candidates or start falling hopelessly behind the GOP in power and influence.
Even if this turns into just a one-cycle phenomenon, it couldn’t come at a worse time for Obama. In order to win a general election, Obama needs to run to his right — and in order to keep the union funding he desperately needs, he will have to move to his left. Either way, Obama loses, as does his party.”
What was Obama doing during the Suckerman blast and the Trumpka threats? Well, what do you think? What do you think Obama is doing? Barack Obama has hit the golf trifecta and the boobery superfecta. The man is a total boob:
“It took President Obama nearly a week, but he’s played the trifecta: golf courses in the three main Martha’s Vineyard hubs of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.
With an earthquake down, a hurricane to come and a revolution in full revolt across the Atlantic, Obama nevertheless did what he likes to do best Wednesday. He golfed.
This time it was at the nine-hole Mink Meadows Golf Club, a day after he played the 18-hole Farm Neck Golf Club. On his first and third days of vacation, he favored the Vineyard Golf Club.
There’s been no word on how the president is playing amid natural disasters and international crises. He was viewed two-putting — or was it three-putting? — on the first green Tuesday, then the curtains closed on media coverage.”
With all the golfing he spends hours and hours and days on one would expect a certain level of proficiency at this point. After years in the White House Obama does not have a level of proficiency in anything but his already strong skills of treachery and boobery.
Barack Obama must be forced into permanent golfing. Will anyone of consequence miss the Boob when he finally is forced out? No. No. No.
